Reintroduction: Corn

Today brings the reintroduction of corn to a close. Corn includes corn, popcorn, corn syrup/fructose (used as a sweetener in sodas, candy, etc.), corn starch (used as a thickening agent in many foods), corn chips, corn tortillas, some cereals, cornmeal, corn oil (often in vegetable oil), and dextrose, dextrins, and maltodextrins (can be found in a variety of items, including meat and cheese). I have listed my food and reactions below for each day. Tomorrow begins the reintroduction of wheat.
